In the battle between the two Snow White movies currently in production, Universal has pulled the latest punch, releasing the first trailer for Rupert Sanders‘ Snow White and the Huntsman (via Apple). Kristen Stewart stars as Snow White in the fairy tale adaptation, training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) who was originally dispatched to kill her. Charlize Theron plays the Evil Queen while Sam Claffin takes on the role of Prince.
Visually, this is an extremely impressive preview of what’s to come. The trailer mostly revolves around the Evil Queen with Theron providing a voice-over throughout. We do get glimpses of Kristen Stewart but for some reason, she doesn’t get to speak at all. Nonetheless, I’m quite excited to see where this is going. This is pretty intense and nothing I would have expected from a Snow White movie.
Check out the trailer below or click over to Apple to watch the trailer in HD. Snow White and the Huntsman opens June 2, 2012.
In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) who was dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power.
The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
